Shropshire Birthday Magician

The other week I had the mighty pleasure of being a Shropshire Magician at at the Lilleshall National Sports and Conferincing Centre, for probably one of the most glamorous 60th birthday parties I’ve ever been to, where I was asked to break the ice with some close up magic.

I hope that when I reach the grand age of 60, I still have enough friends to fill this place…

I’d be very happy indeed.

I had a fantastic time and I got off to a great start with the first group I performed for. It turned out the first lady I met  (a delightful lady of 72) had posed nude for several calendars. Now, I usually pride myself on having a witty comeback for every occasion, but she nearly had me beat. When she signed the card “Miss October”, I said “that’s probably good advice, I think I will miss October…”. She offered me the live version of the calendar, but I declined and continued to play with my 52 pieces of cards.

 I don’t need to sum up the best part of my job; the last paragraph does it for me – I get to meet fabulously amazing people and make them laugh. Let’s face it, I was never going to meet a 70 year old naked calendar model when I was a social worker, was I?

If you’re having a party, and are looking for something different to get your guests laughing (they don’t need to be naked calendar models – but it does help!), why don’t you think about having a funny close up magician walking round and entertaining them during the reception, or between courses of the meal?

If you’d like to have a chat, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 07950 338093. I’m happy to help where I can.
